Pretty Bottoms!

The last step of glazing is cleaning off the bottom of the pot of any glaze.  If you don't, the glaze will fuse the pot to your kiln shelf!  So, I take a sponge and clean the bottoms and then trim around the bottom edge leaving some clay revealed.  You need extra space in case the glaze runs down the outside of the pot.

Next I stamp my Maker's Mark - my Crop Circle Clay logo onto the bottom of the pot with white underglaze.  Underglaze doesn't have silica in it, so it won't stick to the shelf.

Pretty bottoms!
